Bridge International Academies

Mission: To provide every child with the chance to have a high-quality primary education regardless of their family’s income – in a nutshell, “Knowledge for all.”

Where they work: Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria and Liberia







Bridge International Academies is an education innovation company which runs over 400 nursery and primary schools across emerging markets in Africa. Using a data-driven technology platform, Bridge is able to monitor teacher and student performance in real-time to ensure that students are receiving the highest quality education at a cost that is affordable for low-income families.

Bridge is currently participating in a pilot with the Ministry of Education of Liberia, in a country where 42% of children are estimated to be out of school.   Under this public-private partnership, Bridge and other implementing partners are taking over the management of a selection of state schools, to improve the quality of the education whilst maintaining free tuition for the pupils and government ownership.

Our partnership: We have supported the Partnership Schools for Liberia pilot since 2016 with grant funding from our sister non-profit Hampshire Foundation.
